by that assessment from u.s. ambassador to the u.n. susan rice, the protests at the benghazi were sfont nus. it's what happened during the protests in terms of attack on the u.s. consulaequenculate tha difference of opinion. libyans think it was a preplanned attack. it was a group of people that came into the country in the wake of revolution and exploited the security vacuum in the country and planned to carry out an attack on the diplomatic facility. something that happened previously over the past several months on other targets. the rest of the muslim world if you experience it is a more genuine anger towards the anti-islam film. here in libya the people have denounced actually the u.s. consulate attack. we haven't seen the type of protests taking place in other countries systemically in benghazi. since that deadly attack the people of libya particularly in benghazi distanced themselves from that deadly incident. they rejected it and stood in solidarity with ambassador stevens who gave his life in the conflict. people respected him very much. it's a slightly different situation, but on the

alternative next and needing to farther to the right. i get the logic of it. i remember the 1990s with bill clinton. the republican party i think its opposition was as unyielding as the opposition and there was the midterm revolution and newt gingrich and all this stuff. when they lost to clinton in 1996 and an impeachment, they started to think differently. they came up with george w. bush in compassionate conservativism. the apeople was bush could be the republican clinton. he could be the compassionate guy who could sell a message. do you see a potential for that kind of re-evaluation among republicans if they lose this election where they think about electrici electability than they haven't at this point. >> a strategist loves-thet cals. i think it's too soon, and i don't think you can say what will happen in 2012. i remember when george w. bush came on the scene. it was because he started fund-raising and had a lot of money. the biggest concern when you look towards 2016 are the republicans are going to be concerned about hillary clinton and what she's going to do. you may see again a
candidate for the u.s. senate this year. this is a very important speech for her tonight because her campaign, to be honest with you, is not going the way she and democrats hoped it would. she has fallen behind scott brown in the race in massachusetts and needs a break-through moment tonight. that brings us to bill clinton. he will be the star tonight unquestionably delivering, this is the seventh consecutive national, democratic convention he will deliver a featured primetime address, the second time he will place a democrats name in.nomination. the first was michael dukakis. i'm kinds of amused because republicans are beginning their preemptive pushback against the clinton speech and it rests on the idea we like bill clinton. the 1990s were great and barack obama is nothing like bill clinton. i get a little smile on my face. it's almost like they didn't impeach the guy. why don't we get your thoughts up there on the big bill clinton speech tonight. >> i'm thinking about what is the it actual relationship between bill and barack. maureen dowd has an interesting thought in today's "n
you two things. over the '90s there was a decline in teenage pregnancy in the united states and a good institute did it. a quarter of the decline was caused by an increase in abstinence, teenagers were having less sex but three quarters of the decline was caused by a decrease in the use of contraceptions and using more effective contraceptive, so instead of condoms they were using the longer term birth control and that made a big difference. the other thing here is internationally even though we stheerch decline, the united states is still doing worse than most other countries in the developed world in terms of teenage pregnancies. as you can see on the chart, that is also because, number one, we're using less effective forms of birth control. that's like the primary reason. so providing access to birth control, providing the morning after pill, making it readily accessful, those are the best way to combat teen pregnancy and reduce poverty. >> do we make it available to teens who inevitably have sex and all mountainly do it without ruining their life and beinging families long before t
will tell looking at the polls. my read on this an s that the electorate is so divided and polarized you are unlikely to see it move a lot of voters but on the margins one way or the other. i wouldn't be surprised there's wavering conservatives in the country that thought that mitt romney was too weak and hearing him keeping this up trying to reframe his revealed comments, now talking stronger in terms of this particular issue and they're going to feel a little bit better for him and voters on margins not sure about him saying i don't know if i like him now. but i just think that we're not dealing with an electorate to be moved in a large sense. and i'd also say and again we'll find out if, you know, if this is true or not but most of the people that are a part of, you know, this -- whatever the percentage is that don't pay taxes and government benefits and whatever you want to call it, the truth is they all pay taxes in some sense whether they're paying payroll taxes or local property taxes and i found this over the years in talking to voters. they feel like they're paying way too much
criticism of his handling and his response to the attacks at u.s. embassies and consulates in egypt and libya. new poll numbers including those within nbc news show that mitt romney is increasingly trailing his opponent, barack obama. in the state of iowa that gap has swelled to 8 percentage points that romney is trailing barack obama. his own wife ann romney was there just yesterday. the 47% number, that secret videotape where that number was basically used now by the president and everybody else who has heard it to attack him as being out of touch and effectively writing off 47% of americans as victims and government dependents. toure. >> peter, no gambling tonight, okay. >> reporter: yeah, right. >> let's put this in the spin cycle. when romney releases tax returns and professor kornacki is digging through stuff and he sees he did something that disqualifies him for being president by his own standard. tell him. >> we have a trademark made for only mitt romney moments. we've had a few in this campaign, and this is one of them. earlier in year when he came under pressure to put ou
to dissect two of the country's most misunderstood voting blocs. nascar fans and sportsmen, s.e. is a sportswoman. you have info. i want to hear it. >> there are misconceptions about sportsmen, hunters and anglers, blood-thirsty hicks that pull the lever. this is a voting bloc democrats shouldn't take for granted because they're incredibly interested in conservation. an interesting poll from the national wildlife federation found among hunters and anglers 47%, almost half value conservation issues as the same level of importance as gun rights. you can believe 13% put gun rights below conservation efforts. hunters and fishers are land conservationists, they want sustainable waterways and populations protected. it's an interesting sort of breakdown if democrats wanted to look at sportsmen. the other group, nascar voters, i wrote a the lot about them in 2008. they're actually not as poll larized and republican as you think. in 2008 when i was doing research, they positive broke down at 35% republican, 28% democrat, 40% women and 20% minorities. actually, we have some recent data
obama's re-elected that. s will start cooperates and working with him. i talked to a few today. they're not so certain. the one thing that's true is right off the bat if the president is re-elected, there's a lot of serious issues on his plate. the bush tax cuts, the debt limit will come back up in 2013. they will be forced to work together no matter who wins the presidency. all that being said, though, the thing that i found very interesting since the republicans came into power in the house in 2010 has been the lack of communication between speaker boehner, president obama, cantor, biden. they've had some conversations, but obama doesn't call boehner regularly. they don't socialize. they had that golf meeting. they tried to get the debt deal together. that sort of went away. i suspect if you have a president obama getting re-elected, you will see a lbj-style sort of trying to work the other side, work from congress. if there's anything he could have learned from the mistakes of his first term, that would be it. but this idea that republicans are go sing, that's not going to happen.
and make the args umt that s.e. cupp wants to here. now he goes in a different drekdz. in the medicare debate they seemed unprepared to answer the questions. they signaled, no, we're going to make the hard choices and talk the tough talk about medicare and we need to reform entitlements. within the week they were attacking the president for being the one slashing medicare. remember, mitt romney got on his whiteboard and wrote solve it on it and that would solve the problem. last week in the 47% debate, there was a doubling down reiterating the point and saying that's what i meant to say. there was walking back i'm the candidate for 100. if you're a romney ally it's hard to back it up when you have no idea what direction they're heading. it's random. >> it's funny you said you have a fever, and fever is solved by paul ryan. what i rote down in preparation for this is not too little ryan. that sounds like too little cow bell. >> yes, i want more cow bell. >> cow bell is not the problem with this. kind of what you're talking about is you want more conservativism out of the ticket. i hear

wizards and not kings. >> that's complete baloney how bill clinton worked his will. in the 1990s he got his budget through on a tiebreaker vote in the senate with no republican help in 1993. he had a showdown with republicans in 1995. he didn't get his way on that. there were a few modest compromises in the second half of the administration. if he worked his will, health care reform would have been done under bill clinton. >> how does bob woodward get interviews anymore? i said yesterday i said all the president's men is one of my best movies. if he's walking toward you, you're running away. the access he gets when clearly it's going to demolish you. >> if they have this quote-unquote neutral observer in the room, then their version of the story, the true version is really going to come out. >> they want the chance to shape i history, right? everybody wants to be famous. >> good thing the book is so boring no one will read it. >> the krystal ball review. up next a book that politico calls "moneyball" for politics. a book we loved, the secret science of winning campaigns. which president
